Tuscaloosa, Ala. (November 12, 2019) – Honours Golf®, a division of Troon®, the leader in club and hospitality management, development, and marketing, has been selected to manage The Jack Warner Inn in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
The Jack Warner Inn, formerly the Yellowhammer Inn, includes 54 rooms ranging from single rooms to executive and honeymoon suites. The Inn is home to the Apothecary Lounge, a paneled room that served as an authentic Apothecary built in the 1850’s in Galena, Illinois. The room was purchased at auction in Galena, the hometown of former President U.S. Grant, who was known to be a frequent customer. Beyond the Apothecary, the Inn’s spacious 2,000 sq. ft. deck overlooks a peaceful, private wooded area and is favored by guests year-round. The Inn is located on the grounds of NorthRiver Yacht Club in the NorthRiver community and is adjacent to the Yacht Club building, NorthRiver’s most sought-after venue for wedding, corporate retreats and other special events.
“The working partnership with BMV Partners, owners of The Inn, and Honours Golf will be an asset to both NorthRiver Yacht Club and our hotel guests,” said Richard Vogt, BMV partner. “Having The Jack Warner Inn, which is expected to have a name change by the end of the year, managed by Honours Golf, will allow the Inn and Club to operate with a consistent synergism that even with our close proximity and relationship, could not happen prior to this agreement.”
The Inn is expected to undergo an extensive renovation in early 2020 that will include upgrades to guest rooms, main lobby and exterior. Parents visiting students at the University of Alabama can enjoy the hotel’s convenient location just 10 miles from campus.
“Honours Golf’s portfolio is immensely strengthened with the addition of The Jack Warner Inn,” said Matt Hurley, president, Honours Golf. “I believe the Inn will reap great rewards through Honours Golf’s best practices delivered by our industry professionals at NorthRiver Yacht Club as well as from our team and brand leaders from across the world.”
